Site Reliability Engineering

Remote, USA

Check is a payroll-as-a-service API that lets you embed payroll directly in your vertical SaaS, HR, or time-tracking platform. Our API abstracts away the complexities of running payroll: tax calculation, remittance, and filing, plus the movement of money between companies and employees. This enables companies to easily build fully integrated payroll products to offer to their customers.

Trust is Check's number one asset. As a payroll company, we're entrusted to pay a lot of people, on time, accurately, and we take that responsibility very seriously.

For this role, we are seeking a software engineer with deep reliability engineering experience and high integrity. With the support of leadership, you'll have an outsized impact on the reliability of our critical product and our growing organization.

In this role, you will:

  • Improve the scalability, reliability and performance of Check's systems
  • Guide a blameless, sustainable, growth-oriented incident response culture
  • Automate operational tasks and proactively identify and address risks
  • Run operational readiness reviews, consult on best practices, and tabletop scenarios
  • Collaborate with stakeholders across the organization
  • Write Python application code and infrastructure-as-code
Many backgrounds could fit this role, but ideal candidates will have:
  • Sense of responsibility and empathy for users and stakeholders
  • Exercised knowledge of reliability practices, distributed systems, and cloud native architectures through experience working on critical systems
  • Strong software engineering fundamentals that enable the systems we build to detect and respond to changes
  • Ability to communicate complex topics clearly to multiple audiences
  • Strong technical leadership and collaboration skills to work across the organization
  • Experience with AWS, Python, Terraform, databases, networking, APIs, observability platforms, and managing service level objectives

What we offer:

In the US, Check offers company-sponsored medical, dental, vision, short-term/long-term disability and basic life insurance coverage to all full-time employees, effective on your first day of work. We also provide stock options, flexible PTO and sick leave, 16 weeks of fully paid parental leave for all new parents and flexible return-to-work, 9 annual holidays, a 401k retirement plan, and a $100 monthly stipend for home internet and mobile phone expenses. Benefits may vary outside the US.

The minimum annual salary for this role is $125,000 and may increase based upon each candidate's unique experience and qualifications.
